Great news! Cloud Academy’s umbrella company, TechQuarters are happy to announce we’ve become an official Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP)! This partnership demonstrates our commitment, specialism, and knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products.

What is the AEP Program?

The AEP program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorising them to purchase/resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrates to customers that they’re approved and knowledgeable academic partners!

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products.” said CEO, Chris Dunning “We hope to accelerate our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”

“This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corporations’s Worldwide Public Sector.

We’ve met these requirements thanks to our sales team, who studied license terms and academic benefits program, in addition to passing a certification exam.

Their status as tier 1 CSP providers also demonstrates our history of delivering service and recommendation. This all resulted in them being awarded with the accreditation.
